Spreading the word about the growing presence of progressive Alaskans and their powerful ideas on the web
I thought Meg said that Monegan had a "rogue mentality" and was "insubordinate" to his governor and that's why he was fired? I'm all the way down here in the lower 48 and let me tell ya, from my perspective - an 8 to 4 rep vs dem split ooks to be as bipartisan as most cities/states can hope for. To insinuate anyone outside of Alaska was being spun by an Obama supported investigation is to imply the rest of the country is comprised of a bunch of idiots...who don't know how to navigate the series of tubes known as the Internet.
PS: loves the guy in the shades and mohawk in the back, LOL... i am starting to like alaska more and more (despite sarah)...
chef I was wondering how long it would take before a comment came up about the guy in the back. He's a friend of mine, and we were watching the video of this last night wondering what people thought of him.I'm the guy next to him with the camera, and I just posted the full version of the conversation (minus the last 10 seconds when my tape ran out)www.youtube.com/AKTruthSquador liberalaska.blogspot.com (nowhere near as good as this blog, but it's new and will mostly be video I shoot).
Hey, Dave! Your new stuff is GREAT!
Another Palin Scandal Brewing?By David Nite - October 12, 2008, 3:01PMWayne Barrett, in Wednesday's Village Voice, had a rather long article called The Book Of Sarah Palin. While I found parts of it interesting, none of it really meade me sit up and pay attention. Until I got to the last page, that is.It would appear, should anyone want to do a little more digging, that Sarah could have a new scandal on her hands. A scandal that would have repercussions far more serious than a slap on the wrist from the Alaskan legislature. The speculation is that the Palin's may well have pulled a Ted Stevens. That contractors who worked on the Wasilla Sports Complex, may have also provided supplies, materials and labor to build the Palin's $550,000 home, which was completed about the same time as the sports complex.Here is the relevant passage:Todd Palin told Fox News that he built the two-story, 3,450-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bath, wood house himself, with the help of contractors he described as "buddies." As mayor, Sarah Palin blocked an effort to require the filing of building permits in the wide-open city, and there is no public record of who the "buddies" were. The house was built very near the complex, on a site whose city purchase led to years of unsuccessful litigation and, now, $1.3 million in additional costs, with a law firm that's also donated to Palin collecting costly fees from the city.Dorwin and Joanne Smith, the principals of complex subcontractor DJ Excavation & Development, have donated $7,100 to Palin and her allied candidate Charlie Fannon (Joanne is a Palin appointee on the state Board of Nursing). Sheldon Ewing, who owns another complex subcontractor, Weld Air, has donated $1,300, and PN&D, an engineering firm on the complex, has contributed $699.Ewing was one of the few sports-complex contractors, aside from Spenard, willing to address the question of whether he worked on the house as well, but he had little to say: "I doubt that it occurred, but if it did indirectly, how would I know anyhow?" The odd timing of Palin's house construction—it was completed two months before she left City Hall and while she and Todd Palin were campaigning statewide for the first time—raises questions, especially considering its synergy with the complex. http://www.villagevoice.com/2008-10-08/news/the-book-of-sarah/5
